Mr Todiwalas Petiscos
Petiscos are a large and integral part of Portuguese gastronomy and traditions, just as tapas are for Spain with one main difference, Tapas have become internationally known and are served worldwide, often in trendy tapas bars that specialise in Tapas and Spanish wines. Petiscos are still found mainly in Portugal and most people abroad are unfamiliar with the Portuguese culture so have never heard of them.

We love this place , everything from start to finish was perfect . Thank you Steve for been an amazing host . See you soon .
Everything absolutely perfect
Had a lovely evening. All of the dishes were fresh and ‘clean tasting’. The wine selection was small but excellent (you don’t need a big selection if they’re all excellent). I tend to judge a place by the little details so the olive oil was a pleasant surprise- I could have just eaten bread and oil and been happy. We had, I think, 8 dishes in total and there wasn’t a single dud. Owner is very chatty so not a place to go if you prefer hiding in the corner but brilliant if you like a community feel. Will definitely return many times.
Fabulous food, so tasty and unique in the area. Definitely something different.
Superb restaurant in Buckhurst Hill! Wonderful fusion of Portuguese and Indian cuisine and great atmosphere. Huge wine selection and warm, friendly atmosphere. We will certainly return. Thank you!
Through a bizarre set of coincidences I actually ate at the restaurant on two consecutive days. On both occasions the food was excellent, the service excellent and the ambiance great. This restaurant deserves to thrive but it’s main problem is also its USP, it’s not quite like anything else around. It’s is a blend of light Gohan and Portuguese cuisine with unbelievable flavours. Just go and try it and you will be booking a return very soon.
Every dish was delicious! We will be back to sample more off the menu.
Delicious food, helpful and informative staff, interesting wine list. Nice, intimate restaurant. Definitely one to return to.
Fabulous food, delicious wine, friendly service, a great evening
Great evening, Steve’s wine recommendations are spot on, always the right choice to go with our food
The best meal out we've had in ages. Tapas with a Goan twist. What could be better? Oh and the Portuguese wine was fantastic
Excellent food as always and a great selection of wines
This is our fifth time at Petscos, every time the mains, the desert, the wine, the port, service, the atmosphere have all been excellent, I could not think of a single thing I would suggest to change. Stephen took great care of us and his wine suggestions have introduced us to so many new favourites, all the wines come with a wonderful back storey; where they came from, what the winery was like, what the owner was like. It is obvious that a great deal of care and attention is placed in the choosing of the wine and food. I would recommend this for anyone wanting something a little different, for those who enjoy meandering through tastes, good company and an easy evening.
Food was perfect
Service was amateur
Ambience was Mediocre
We were not wowed
Really good and different food and excellent wine choice.
Brilliant food, lovely wine, make sure you order the prawn dumplings in the Goan curry sauce! The whole menu is great.
Food was nice more of an Asian twist on Portuguese food. There could have been more of an ambience. The staff needed more training and the service was quite rushed especially when it came to us giving the table back. They plonked the bill down without us asking and started clearing away our drinks. It wasn’t particularly busy so we didn’t understand the need to rush.
Steve is such a marvellous host. Food was delicious and wine perfect . Another great evening . Thank you see you very soon .
Fantastic food and outstanding wine and very competitively priced
Amazing food and restaurant. Very friendly staff. Highly recommend. We will definitely be returning.
Excellent service, great food and despite social distancing a friendly ambiance. I can't fault them for anything and will be back soon.
Been twice and just love it. Food is delicious , wine is the tops and staff very helpful . Great to have such a restaurant near by as all there is locally is Turkish and too many of them
Great food definitely coming again
We love this restaurant, the food is delicious and the owner Steve is an excellent host. The food is essentially tapas style but on this occasion we had a starter a main and a dessert.
This was an excellent experience. There was a wide range of small plates all with distinctive vibrant flavours, styles and textures. The wine list is great with much of it available by the glass - super for people like me who like to taste and test. Very good service, with helpful staff always to hand when you wanted them. Bare stripped interior means it's on the noisy side, but I'll survive. I'll be back.
Excellent will be back again
Great food and the service was good. Thanks for the wine recommendations.
Absolutely lovely food, fantastic varied menu, good wine choice and great service
Simply stunning food, to the point where I ate too much just because I didn't want the meal to end! Service is very attentive, with the owner coming over to chat and recommend dishes and wines. I will most definitely be returning often
Very good and will definitely visit again.
Staff were friendly and food was great!
Had a very enjoyable evening.
Great food and wine.
Will definitely go back.
Lovely Goan influenced Portuguese food at reasonable prices. Service was fast and the atmosphere friendly. All the dishes were excellent but special recommendation for the fish with curry sauce. Worth a trip even if not local!
We had a very enjoyable time here - the food and drinks were excellent. There is an extensive wine list. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly.
Lovely welcome from Stephen a great host for the evening.
Food arrived very quickly, almost to quickly which really was down to the two hour time slot. We will go back to have a more leisurely stroll through the menu.
If you fancy something different try this place. Portuguese tapas and main dishes are unique. The wine list is excellent and of course the ports are fabulous. Great service and the Covid distancing doesn’t inhibit at all. A great evening out.
Really enjoyable meal, with friendly and helpful service.
Lovely food, staff very friendly but not over the top.
Wonderful little local restaurant. Portuguese and goan mix. Excellent dishes and a good selection of desserts. Piri Piri chicken is to die for.
We always enjoy being here. The menu's changed a bit & there were tasty surprises. Mustache wine from Lisbon is great.
